That is kina what I have been planing on my own, building a bibliography on the Second International on worldcat

But the sticking point is, the London congress was the only one with the full proceedings published in English. The International Socialist Bureau tried to get US and British parties to translate and print the records of the later congresses, but these failed due to a lack of underwriters.

Some people just have no appreciation of History.

I saw some interesting items in your biblio. Are any or all of them in the Archive, if I can get them I will have them scanned.

Minkoff was basically a reprint series based on the george Haupt bibliography, which I also used to create my own list (though I also added some things he didn't) Most of the material is in French or German, but there is some in English, Yiddish and, I suspect, Russian.

I don't know about the cp status of the Minkoff reprints.
